There is no such thing in today's world; more eyes watching equal more hands that can potentially harm, and the government thinks you are a potential threat too. Are you betting that the people hiding behind the technology that does the scanning come in peace? They hide behind covert, clandestine, and surreptitious projects in camouflage and stealth. If they came in peace, they would act as though they have nothing to hide, and plaster their operators faces all over their spy planes. But they aren't doing that, so, they don't come with good intentions.
With cameras they don't even stop looking at you even after they have one up your colon. For real, the government has guidelines for when they want to see your colon.
Give them a day of doubt, they will take a year of research to find your dirt. Give them a cell, they will take your DNA. Give them a photo, they will try to put it in a file of your problems. All it takes is one bad general with one bad order, or one rumor of the T-word (ter'ist), or that your neighbor is a T-word, and you will get as paranoid as the government is right now putting cameras up in innocent places.
The body is often regarded sacred, and people are taking steps to maintain that sense of honor, dignity, and respect. So it's an electronic burka.
